VOALA’s mission is to help disadvantaged people meet their potential through programs that encourage positive development, promote self-sufficiency and foster independence. The group that often falls through the cracks are those not diagnosed as needing substance abuse residential treatment.  As a result, the individuals continue to be lost to the addiction, unable to live a healthy, complete life.  Therefore, with the help of the LPHA, individuals who would be missed without benefits will now qualify for services at Central City Recovery.
